Phone 5236 Carter Answers / Klimaszewski On Bridge St Job Confirmation of a statement is sued recently by Third Ward: Re publican Bupgess James Lyon concerning the Bridge street resur facing project, was ^rriade todaj by Warden Harry E. Carter. Th warden's statement is as follows: "I want to. confirm Burgess Lyons' recent statement to the ef {ect that Burgess . JSlimaszewsk was informed several 5 ;' months ago at a board meeting that the Bridge street job was not> completed an< that the foundation would have tc lay for a period before the finish ing surface was applied. "The road was excavated andth- foundation placed and later on a seal coat of: asphalt covered the foundation as protection during the winter. "The complete job is under the supervision of a state supervisor who at no time has given the impression that the job was com pleted. He is head supervisor of this district for the state and has over 20 years experience on roac work. ... "As for the borough reporting the cost of work on various streets on which State Town Aid funds are used, this has never been done Naugatuck has nearly 200 streets on which state mdhey can be spent. The bridge street.job will, accord- Ing to the state, supervisor, cost about $3000. "It is on the recommendation of the state supervisor that the finishing coat is ,to be applied shortly. It could not have been completed sooner as. the asphalt plant did not start operations until April. "We are correcting a bad road condition which has existed long before the present administration took office. "The question might be asked why previous administrations were not so upset about the situation as they pretend to be at present."
